This is a different type of book for Robin Cook, it takes him away from his Medical thriller realm. This book is about an Egyptologist named Erica Baron and her search for ancient treasures in the Valley of the Kings. This story is full of action and intrigue. One of Robin Cook\'s more under-rated books. I really enjoyed it. This particular edition of this book is a hardback Book Club Edition. The dust jacket is worn.
